Second Decade

1564: Brindle 25: The Crimson Crusade and its forces secretly surround dozens of towers throughout the Marches, Provinces and the Kels and arrest over 500 Gizerathi Magi on charges of Infernalism. All five-hundred are executed after fabricated evidence and magically forced confessions make it appear as though the Magi are guilty to local authorities.

Third Decade

1570: The Crimson Crusade creates their first church (by claiming an old Gizadi church) and name it a "Church of the Red Sun". Soon banners with Red Suns painted on them start appearing in every town and city within the human lands. Churches that once held Amarites, Gizadi or Gormundi are now centers of Crimson Crusade activity.

1570: The Order of the Golden Lions, the Paladin's Holy Order of the Church of Arn, was disbanded after their current leader was found guilty of harboring Magi who were charged with Infernalism, defending them against the legal authority of the Crusade and raising arms against the Church of Arn. When the Crusade arrived at their stronghold in Kel Arn, it was empty and their treasury had been moved to another location (the Barony of North Shield).

1570: The Crusade outlaws all other religions other than Arn in the human lands.
